Violet is quite commonly used on walls when the idea is to add drama through some colour play. A good purple wall colour combination is with off-white, that can add subtlety to the otherwise dark tone.

Periwinkle and Black

Eggplant and White

Eggplant or aubergine is a deep, dark variant of purple colour, and goes well with white to balance the combination. If you have a small space, keep the accent wall in an eggplant purple hue and the rest of the walls white, or you can reverse this colour scheme if you want to create a darker setting.

This will give your walls a shaded look and when paired with white furniture, will create a cohesive interior style.
